Martin Ochoa – NYC Night Missions

New York at night is just the best.  Between the lights, the life, the awesome banks, ledges, rails, wallrides, etc that NYC has to offer. It’s just perfect. It has its bad areas and its good areas, it’s whatever you choose to ride. Everything is a risk, so why not just take it and see what results out. Riding/filming in the city at night is definitely my favorite thing to do. At night, there’s not as many people out and you almost always have a better chance to ride the spot without a problem than during the day. – Martin Ochoa

Riding around NYC is the best to me. No matter what time it is, there will always be something open. There’s always places to shred. Bodegas are one of the most essential places for riding around, always open for if you’re in a need of a drink or snack it’s never a problem. Just like how I like my bike, simple and always working. For me, there’s nothing like riding a set of Animal parts on your bike. Always super solid, always reliable. I’ve had this setup for about 4 months now and it’s holding up amazing, no problems at all. If there’s anything I could change on my bike now would be the frame to a Skavenger.  – Martin Ochoa
